Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Update: Promises Kept Despite Libelous Headlines From The Desert Sun – and Insider Updates
We’ve been pretty clear. The local media in Riverside County is abhorrent. They were 100% complicit in the corruption of Stan Sniff, and similar to the New York Times and Washington Post – both caught in multiple lies related to President Trump – the Desert Sun is on a rampage to assuage its’ endorsement of Stan Sniff.
Neither of the major local toilet papers have bothered to cover the myriad of efficiency improvements implemented by the Sheriff. Neither covered the CCW issue, because at the end of the day most of their employees are gun-grabbing liberals anyway.
There has been no follow up on things like Kevin Duffy, Sniff Management Personnel that got away with sexual harassment (think #METOO), crimes, cover-ups, gross mismanagement and the like.
What we do get from the Desert Scum is a chicken-feed cheap shot headline.
The headline reads “DID CHAD BIANCO LIE!?“, but the article is pretty much the same pablum we’ve grown tired of since the Desert Sun failed to properly cover the Stan-Sniff deputy cheating scandal cover-up.
You have to read down 7(!) Paragraphs (note the similar pattern in the New York Times or the Washington Post) – to get to the meat of the story. The first seven paragraphs were replete with implications of secrecy and lies lies lies by the Sheriff.
Although the proposed rate isn’t what Bianco promised, this year’s 2.19% rate increase and next year’s projected 5% increase are not as dramatic as rate increases in the years before he took office.Imagine that. But, Bianco is a liar because the rates did not go down. It is similar to media attacking President Trump’s Tax Reform that dropped taxes for 85% of Americans
Then after all the cheap shots to lead the article – there is this:
Even though many said they were hopeful Bianco could lower the rate in the weeks leading up to the meeting, officials from Temecula, Menifee, Moreno Valley and La Quinta commended Bianco for reining in the rate at which the contract cost is increasing.Now why did you call Chad Bianco a liar, Desert Sun? I think you owe him an apology, front page above the fold.
And Bianco thinks his 5% estimate for next year’s rate increase was on the high side.
“With what we are doing, I can’t imagine it going anywhere but down,” he said in an email to The Desert Sun.
Very interesting that an article headlined “Broken Promises” has these sorts of quotes in it. This is what Media outlets do when they feel forced to have to cover positive news about electeds they don’t like. (Especially a Conservative Republican like Chad Bianco)
La Quinta City Manager Frank Spevacek said Tuesday’s meeting was a refreshing change from prior contract partner meetings but he was taking a wait-and-see approach to determine if the new sheriff’s administration could rein in costs.Note – no mention that the prior contract partner meetings were with Desert Sun endorsed Stan Sniff. Imagine that.
“Proof of their commitment to this new way will be determined by the going forward actions the sheriff implements,” he said.I can hardly wait to serve the Desert Sun some more crow when the reforms bear more fruit
A couple of side items. Stan Sniff’s cronies that used to control CCW Classes and ranges now have competition. One of the many reforms brought in by Chad Bianco are new ranges and new vendors authorized for the CCW Program. H Paul Payne, a man I believe to be invertebrate slime, who inexplicably is in a position of authority in gun rights groups has been silent while Bianco does in 4 months what his boy Sniff did the exact opposite of in 11 years.
Omitted from the Desert Sun Story – conveniently so by the way – is the hiring binge going on by the Sheriff’s Department. Inside sources tell me that the fiscal mismanagement under Stan Sniff was so pervasive that just simple changes to methods of doing business are allowing the department to make their money stretch further. It is unclear to this blogger if the extent of the mismanagement, what I believe to be felony embezzlement, misappropriation, commingling and accounting fraud that was the rule under sniff will ever be fully known or revealed. This was also omitted from the Desert Sun Story.
We had written previously that one of our favorite punching bags, Jason “Deuce” Horton was being hired as the Chief of Police for Yakima, WA. Well, Horton quit his job in Code Enforcement and was already packing his bags. The City Council missed the memo and hired someone else. DOH! I guess that means Horton can glare at me at the next CAGOP Convention in Indian Wells in September.
I am waiting to hear about several individual cases of employees who were screwed over by the Sniff regime. People like Tammy Smoak, Gabe Dennington and Lance Colmer come to mind. I am also very curious to see what is coming next related to the massive cover-up of one of the worst serial child molesters in American History (if everything alleged is true) Kevin Duffy. I am sure the Desert Sun will have nothing to say, or they will try to blame Chad Bianco for it.
If the Desert Sun is following the typical leftist media pattern – they are going to set a narrative that Bianco is a liar, tries to hide stuff (which they did in this cheap shot article) and is in over his head trying to run the department. Watch for it, I’ve seen it for years from media outlets, especially those butt-hurt when their endorsee loses an election.

Are you surprised.? The Dessert Sun and the Depressed Enterprise have been Stan’s Sniff bed whores.
I’m very interested to know when Chad Bianco is going to open the Kevin Duffy case for a detailed investigation.?
Great article Aaron. Sniff and the second floor mutants needed to go for the sake of the public good. And there is fustration, on many levels in D.A. Mike Hestrin’s inaction in allowing the malfeasance of the second floor to continue unabated. And this dissatisfaction will be expressed come election time. In all actually, Mike Hestrin’s behavior could be considered a neglect of duty issue.
Although I doubt the likes of Karen Spiegel and Jeff Hewitt will do the right thing and make whole those that have been denied special assignments, promotions, or were unjustly terminated. Because to do so would mean being accountable, and they would rather see good people suffer this injustice than give so much as a penny in order to keep their coffers full for their own selfish, pet projects.
Good, loyal staff members were victimized by the Sniff regime, and even though their plight may never be rectified like, “done wrong at Perris,” who was one of the best cops ever to pin a badge on, their misfortune helped serve a greater good in the demise of Stan Sniff and his “den of iniquity” he called his command staff. So keep up the heat Aaron because our elected officials need to understand, “those that fail to learn from the past are destined to repeat it.”
Does anyone know the status of Jennifer Higgins? She was placed on Admin. leave (pending termination) for dishonesty. It’s alleged she lied during Capt. Andrew Shouse’s arbitration hearing. I wonder if they also interviewed Marty Tochtrop because I don’t believe there is a communication privilege between a cohabiting couple in an I.A. when the couple are Department members. And you know she spilled her guts to him once she was assigned home. And if by a miracle she keeps her job, we don’t need her at Mo Val.
Keep her away from the west side of the county. We don’t need or want her lying ass here. Blythe sounds like the perfect place for her. Department is definitely on the way up.
